“Truman Capote created a woman whose name has entered the American idiom and whose style is a part of the literary landscape. Holly Golightly knows that nothing bad can ever happen to you at Tiffany’s; her poignancy, wit, and naïveté continue to charm.”
This was quite a short novel, and not at all what I was expecting. Written from the perspective of a man whose real name was never mentioned, it was about a wondrous girl called Holly who moved into the flat downstairs. The story followed her antics and the new friends she always seemed to pick up. It was an interesting perspective to see the story from, as the narrating character was at some points seemingly on the outside, looking in at her life, but sometimes it was the other way round. As the story progressed, you learn more about who she actually was and why she lived her life her own way.
I found it a rather confusing story to begin with as I couldn’t really see where it was going, but once I got into it properly, I really enjoyed it. I felt sorry for the characters by the end as I felt that a bond had grown between me and them. Overall, it was a very good heartfelt story.
